Real Madrid 2 Barcelona 3 Neymar and Messi lead Valverde's men to ICC title

"The word 'not' means there is no interpretation".

"I'm in Shanghai at the moment".

Ribeiro told reporters at Barcelona's El Prat airport that PSG would pay Neymar's buyout clause "in the coming hours" and that the 25-year-old could be presented in Paris "this weekend".

The Brazilian superstar was given permission to miss training with the La Liga side on Wednesday morning to complete his move to the Parisians, with his agent already in the French capital awaiting his arrival.

He said: "PSG respect all contracts that exist between other teams and players".

In their statement on Wednesday afternoon, Barcelona referred to a "loyalty bonus" that Neymar was due to be paid if he remained at the club beyond August 1.

In light of all this, SI has found a way to capitalize on Neymar-mania by making him their most recent cover athlete.

In October, Neymar signed a new contract until 2021 with the buy-out clause raised.

The five-year deal is reportedly worth 450 million pounds.

Earlier on Wednesday, Barça confirmed that Neymar had been granted a temporary leave of absence from training.

In another twitter posting restricted to the sports press, the club said he was leaving but gave no further details.

The unprecedented scale of the deal has sparked rumours that Barca could make a complaint to UEFA over a purported failure to adhere to Financial Fair Play rules by the purchasing club.

Barca's latest statement requesting full payment suggests such an option is not on the table and comes after LaLiga president Javier Tebas questioned the legality of such an outlay from PSG under FFP rules. But the new season is just around the corner and #Fc Barcelona are ready to prepare for official competition once more.

Neymar is on the verge of joining Paris Saint-Germain from Barcelona.

But the club have decided to put it on hold, pending on how the situation evolves.

Without Neymar, it's tough to envisage how Barca's attack will line up in the long term. "I have learned the secret of being content.whether living in plenty or in want".
